Harvest period

first half of October; hand harvested with careful selection of the clusters

Vinification

soft crushing of the grapes with de-stemming; static fermentation in oak casks with indigenous yeasts selected from our vineyards; maceration for about 30 days, frequent basting of the skins

Fining

3 years in medium sized (15-30 hl) French oak barrels with the minimum amount of racking necessary. Further maturation in demijohns for the Reserve selection. No filtration or chemical stabilization before bottling. Bottle aged for at least 12 months

Organoleptic characteristics

Color: Ruby red with orange hues

Nose: intense, hints of dried rose, licorice, tobacco and leather. As it ages it acquires spicy notes and a complex “goudron”

Mouth: dry, robust but velvety; complex tannic structure and long finish

Food pairings

roasted and braised red meats, game, aged cheeses

Serving suggestion

taste in large glasses which favor oxygenation and enhance the nose. Serve at 18 °C. Since it is a Barolo, it has been in the bottle for some time and light sediment can be present for which it is always advisable to decant

Storing method

keep bottles horizontally in a dark and temperature consistent place
